Broken Pipes and Sink Holes
A broken water main on Dumont Drive in Hyannis , just east of the West End Rotary, early Wednesday caused a large sinkhole to open in the road way nearly swallowing a Cape Cod Times delivery truck.
The driver of the van was able to get out of the vehicle and was not injured.
Water department crews repaired the pipe and DPW crews worked on the sink hole. A lane on East bound Main Street, from the West End Rotary to the North/South Main and South Streets split, was closed while the work was in progress.
About the time water was restored to the west end of Hyannis, another water pipe burst in the vicinity of Barnstable Road and the airport rotary causing traffic delays while that pipe was repaired.
